As an experiment of sorts, I decided to shoot my first video blog (or “vlog”) for Radio Survivor. I’ve been wanting to share a bandscan of all the HD Radio stations in Portland, OR, where I live, and I finally got down to it.
Although I’m a critic of HD Radio, I do think it’s interesting to explore the HD-2, 3, and 4 signals, which offer some interesting alternatives and seem to change up fairly often. I thought this might be of interest to many of you who have never used or heard an HD Radio receiver, except for maybe one that’s in a car, which isn’t actually an ideal place to scan and find all the subchannels.
Yes, I know I’m a little out-of-focus. It wasn’t obvious until after I started editing, and I decided that perfect was the enemy of done. Better focus can wait for VLOG #2.
Let me know what you think in the comments–especially if you think there should be a #2.
